Floor Mats for Hospitals and Where to Place Them

Floor mat placement may not be the first thing that you think about when you are planning out a hospital, but it is something you certainly need to consider. There is a lot of strategy that goes into floor mat selection and placement in hospitals. Hospitals are busy, high-traffic facilities where health and safety are top priorities. When considering floor mats, it's important to think of all the people they will serve including nurses, receptionists, patients, visitors, doctors and more. Floor mats and their placement play a key role in hospital design and daily function.

Hospital Entrance Mats

The entrance of the hospital is the first point of contact for every individual. Mud, water and debris can create an unclean, and possibly dangerous, environment if they are tracked inside. Use floor mats in the hospital to prevent falls and help keep the building clean. Entryway floor mats act to clean the feet of people as they are coming into the hospital. We recommend using mats such as the Brush Hog, WaterHog Impressions HD Logo Mat, or SuperScrape Impressions to do the job. By the time visitors reach the reception area, hospital-grade floor mats will have already scraped their shoes, absorbed as much water as possible and keep hazardous debris from entering the area.

Floor Mats in Patient and Visitor Areas

In areas of the hospital where patients and visitors frequent, choose logo floor mats that feature the hospital logo and also provide comfort and stability. Floor mats such as Classic Impressions and WaterHog Impresions HD Logo Mat, combined with a custom logo, can do just that. In any area where there is a lot of foot traffic, including nurse areas, it's a good idea to add a special branded touch.

Hospital Kitchen and Laundry Floor Mats

Floor mats for hospital kitchens and laundry ares are also very important. For the kitchen, you will want to select the appropriate anti-fatigue mat for your needs. These mats offer a nice design to your hospital while providing physical support to employees who are on their feet in the kitchen all day. Anti-fatigue mats also allow for easy cleanup and reduce the risk of slipping on spilled water or food.

Hospital laundry areas shouldn't be overlooked when it comes to mat placement. Interior mats placed in laundry areas can help keep the floor clean and protect employees from slipping and falling on any water that might end up on the floor.

Floor Mats for Home Hospital Care

Patient safety doesn't just matter at the hospital. When it comes to at-home hospital care, floor mats can still play an important role. An entrance mat at home will help keep floors clear of mud and water and make sure hazardous debris isn't tracked in.

Coming in a variety of sizes and colors, the WaterHog Fashion Mat is a great choice for a home entrance mat. It will ensure the safety of both the at-home patient and visiting healthcare professionals while also adding a stylish touch.

Hospital Floor Mats

There are plenty of considerations to make when it comes to floor mats in hospitals. By choosing the right mat and the right placement, your hospital can be a safe and efficient place to work and visit.
